What about smoke detectors?

All homes should have a smoke detector in or near sleeping areas. Smoke detectors can be wired into the existing electrical system (with a battery backup) or battery operated. Smoke detectors have a life expectancy of 10 years, so change the batteries at least once per year, and replace the smoke detector after 10 years or when the detector fails to work and/or test properly. If you need assistance with the installation of a battery operated smoke detector, call Odessa Fire Rescue. We will provide a smoke detector to homeowners who need assistance.
